I have begun getting regular emails lately (from very kind folks indeed), asking if I will be doing a 2012 calendar similar to the 2010 and 2011 ones. As much as I would like to, I honestly just don't see it happening this year.
This has been such a busy and wonderfully full year, that I simply have not had much time to sit down and do much drawing / painting. Well, I don't know if that is entirely true. I suppose I could have found the time somewhere. I should say, I have have chosen to spend more time in the gardens, running my little business, doing school, working on Chip's office, and using my creative moments to "make" for my home and family. (I find that we thrive so much more as a family when Mom is not taking too much on.)
We are also planning to make even more of the Christmas gifts for this year than last, which will take much time and creative energy. And as far as my art is concerned, I seem to be filling my sketchbooks with fun and relaxing little bits of this and that but none of it very calendar worthy. I am enjoying the freedom of not drawing and painting for anyone but myself, selfish as it sounds.
So all this is to say that, there will most likely be no 2012 calendar from me. I am sorry to disappoint those of you who were looking forward to one. I have really enjoyed making the calendars and would love to make more in the future along with other fun printable things. :)
Have a beautiful day!
